Students won't just need an understanding of STEM concepts in their future careers, they will need to be able to apply those concepts to real-world scenarios and work as part of a team to solve problems.
That's where Unboxed Challenges™ come in...
What are Unboxed Challenges™?
Progressive Scenario-Based Puzzles
Challenges put students in role-playing scenarios with objectives like navigating an asteroid belt, communicating with aliens, and fixing technical issues with their ship in the Galaxy theme, and decoding binary, creating circuits, and using UV lights as undercover agents in the CIA theme.
Self-Contained for Scalability
From individual classrooms to a gym filled with tables, Unboxed Challenges™ kits are self-contained allowing us to scale events to impact as many students as possible.
Designed for Diverse Skillsets
Each theme is carefully designed to allow students with different strengths to each contribute in meaningful ways.
The "Out-of-the-Box" Outreach Students Need
Unboxed Challenges™ are the engaging, hands-on activities students need, reinforcing concepts they are learning in the classroom while shaking up the day-to-day and developing critical skills for their futures.
"I'm still mind-blown. I believe it gives students confidence in their own skills & abilities. It also opens the doors for new career options. It also enhanced and challenged their critical thinking."- Teacher, Southeastern High School
Unboxed Challenges™ emphasize the skills students need for their future careers.
The World Economic Forum's Future of Jobs 2020 report outlined the top ten skills of 2025, which unsurprisingly included problem-solving, leadership and social influence, flexibility, and resilience. Due to pandemic-related educational disruptions, students are falling behind in developing these interpersonal skills because remote learning and social distancing results in less engagement with their peers. Unboxed Challenges™ are filled with opportunities to practice and develop these critical interpersonal skills.
